The Lost and Found Pony

Cover image  What child doesn’t like ponies? The Lost and Fond Pony by Tracy Dockray (2011, Feiwel and Friends) is a beautifully written, gorgeously illustrated (I especially like the picture of the pony jumping through the ring of fire.) story about the life of a pony, from birth to old age. The story goes full circle when the little girl who outgrew him comes back at the end to bring him home again. It’s an endearing story with a charming main character and it got me wondering about all the real ponies that have been “outgrown”. Where do they end up? An author’s note at the back of the book offers some insight into the question.
